Words can not describe the performance LeBron James put on display last night in Boston. LeBron played like the 3 time league MVP last night. There was nothing the Celtics could do to stop him. Boston could've thrown the kitchen sink at LeBron last night and i don't think it would've mattered.
In a game where the Celtics were looking to close out the Miami Heat and head to the NBA Finals, things didnt go as planned. The Celtics were witnesses to LeBron James "silent" explosion. Let me explain what i mean by "silent." Throughout the ball game you can usually hear LeBron talking to the refs after a call or even to the other team at times. None of that last night, he just went out there got his 45 points and 15 rebounds like it was routine...did his post game conference with Doris Burke...went to the locker room...read his book...did his press conference...and ended it by saying, "Looking forward to game 7, see yall in Miami."
This was one of the most impressive performances ive ever seen. Its not just the fact that he scored 45 points. Its the stage he did it on. Down 3-2 in the series to a team completely capable of ending your season. On the road in a hostile environment, and you just go in there and crush the spirits of everybody in the arena. If Boston thought they were going to just show up and win, they thought wrong. The most jaw dropping play, had to be late in the 1st half when he took off and caught a tip dunk after flying in from the 3 point line. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ln3GSDPUzdg
Now the series shifts back to South Beach in the final game of the series. What should we expect from both teams...honestly, i couldn't tell you. This has got to be one of the most confusing games to predict. But, I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say Miami wins the game. I think Bosh will be the x factor in this game. Miami will get out to a fast start just like in game 6. Boston will make their runs, but it just wont be enough. Dwyane Wade will have a good game; close to a triple double, and LeBron will just be LeBron. The Miami Heat will advance to play the Oklahoma City Thunder in the 2012 NBA Finals.
